Ms. Guay from Lewiston ME is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Making Our Learning Materials Organized and Accessible!

My students need accessible and organized storage for their therapeutic materials. The cubby organizers will allow my students to be able to find and utilize the paper, books, puzzles, and writing utensils independently!

My Students

The students here at my school are an energetic and diverse group of kids with a variety of abilities and needs.

This school is a Title 1 school where I serve students with cognitive disabilities, learning disabilities, and motor impairments.

These children are motivated, excited to learn, and eager to please. This is a highly impoverished area where many students don't even get their basic needs met. These students have so much to offer and coming to the therapy room is a safe and fun place for them to learn and grow.

When in the therapy space, my students are able to engage in learning, exploration, and social skills.

My Project

We are currently using boxes, broken crates, and cracked plastic drawers that are difficult to open to store all of our therapy supplies including our puzzles, paper, crayons, handwriting books, and other fine motor tools. My students cannot access their materials well and they are difficult to find.

It would really benefit my students if they could have organized and accessible storage furniture that would hold all their therapeutic supplies.

This would also allow us to have more effective and efficient therapy times if all of our materials were sorted and able to be accessed with ease.

With the new storage furniture, my students would be able to access their supplies independently and safely. Items could be found faster and sessions would be more productive.
